You'd be better off keeping it under 1200 miles and getting the service done when you get the car home. As far as timing your appt, the staff at the Welt are very punctual.

You could try David Aviles at Northwest BMW outside Baltimore. They have made a business of doing ED and are highly recommended on other forums. Just ordered my M3 from him. --eurocarsonline.com

Why not just turbocharge the 8 for some really rediculous horsepower (and probably better mileage) instead of watering everything down with a 6? Seems like a no-brainer. Now Audi and Merc will...

The big deal is that I don't want my car to shut itself off. In traffic. Or at a light. If I want to turn my engine off I will reach over and hit the "Start/Stop" button. I don't care about gas...
